About Argents Mead

Bandstand, Argents Mead

This park is in the centre of Hinckley town centre and is easily accessed off Church Walk and the car park. Access is also available from St Mary's church, Mount Road, St Mary's Road and Hill Street.

In 2006, major improvements took place which included the installation of a bandstand that is available to host a wide variety of local and regional music performances.

Access to the War Memorial and gardens was improved, along with the pathways and enhanced lighting in the Mead. In addition, the enhanced hard landscaping has opened up the Mead to the town centre and created more seating areas for people to relax and listen to the entertainment. Events take place here throughout the summer.

A new leisure centre was opened in spring 2016 to replace the former council buildings at Argents Mead. This was followed by the installation of a new town centre play area during the summer.

In 2023, major refurbishment work took place to the moat which included new bank stabilisation and the removal of silt. These works will preserve this important historical feature for future generations.

Argents Mead has achieved the prestigious Green Flag Award every year since 2016. Green Flag awards recognise and reward the best parks in the country. Argents Mead stood out after impressing the judges with its excellent use of green space, well-maintained facilities, high standard of safety and security, and use of sound environmental practices.
